Knipp is a German sausage that is believed to have originated in Bremen. It is made with pork or beef, oats, onions, allspice, salt, pepper, and various herbs. Although knipp is visually unappealing, when fried in butter and served on a slice of toasted white bread or wholemeal bread, it makes for a great breakfast treat.
Originally, it was consumed by peat diggers who used to mix ground offal and bacon rind with oatmeal. It is recommended to serve knipp with pickles, applesauce, or fried potatoes on the side.
